    any tricks to removing the rear pivot bearings?

    on my 07 SJ FSR? There are 4, two on each side, so i can't get to the inside to knock them out like I did all the other bearings. I'd hate to buy a $100 blind bearing puller for 4 bearings?

    Any tricks to getting them out?

    Thanks!

    I had my Specialized LBS remove those for $5, I couldn't get them out, rest weren't bad. They had a 'special' tool. Not sure if it was special for that pair or the same thing you rig up w/ bolt & a socket (which wouldn't work in this case).

    there is a machined shoulder inside that keeps the bearings seperated.

    So, you need a blind hole bearing puller or the ability to slowly tap the bearing out from the other side

    an cheaper example: (Not Metric) http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...112&zmap=95987

    will a non metric one work? Looks like it just expands to fit.

    a 5/16th one shoould fit those 8mm bearings.
    1/2" shoul fit 13mm
    a 9/16th should fit 14mm
    3/4 should fit 19mm

    1" should work on 25mm
